Institut de la statistique du Québec
The Institut de la statistique du Québec (or Quebec Statistical Institute in translation) is the governmental statistics agency of Quebec. It is responsible for producing, analyzing, and publishing official statistics to enhance knowledge, discussion and decision-making. The 1998 law that established it (with effect on April 1, 1999) states that it can also be referred to as Statistique Québec.
It is part of the Ministry of Finance of Quebec.
It grouped together four previous entities: the Bureau de la statistique du Québec, the Institut de recherche et d'information sur la rémunération, Santé Québec, and the personnel of the Ministry of Labour who were responsible for compiling salary information.
